Google are no better IMO. Both companies need to stop bickering.

I'm just going to leave this here:

Maybe besides making childish comments like this, make posts that are actually stated as opinion and not fact. I was just pointing that out.

Almost as annoying as people who say "The thing is, Microsoft does make better products", when that's clearly an opinion but stated as a fact. :laugh:

Exactly..same goes with Apple and Samsung.

It seems to me that Microsoft is a bit desperate here. No matter what they do they can't seem to get a break while Google is still the media's darling.

It's tough when you spout opinion as fact and people don't agree eh?

Seems more of a PSA to me, since most GMail users probably don't know and merely signed up because of the phone they purchased. Hence litle knowledge or care of the privacy pro/con of which ecosystem they were joining.

I just hate it cause it gives DBags like Luntz jobs.

I liked it better when Microsoft kept their mouth shut.

While I'm rather annoyed at Google lately, Microsoft really has no room to talk, and plenty of room for improvement.

You do realise that pretty much every site you visit does this too. At least more and more sites are using a similar disclaimer.
You may as well just quit the internet if you don't agree with it.

Google allows opting out via DNT, and using thier cookies, MS does not.
In fact it's pretty funny how MS keeps slating google yet in everything I see (minus compatibility) google seems better than MS does.

The thing is Microsoft does make better products (Outlook.com comes to mind) but the media shuns everything Microsoft and spends most of its time and energy worshipping Google. The media and tech sites, does a fine job of tearing Microsoft a new one for everything they do, so I guess Microsoft decided if they wanted something done right (in this case, done at all) they were going to have to tear Google down themselves.


That's your opinion. MS just fixed some of the sharing options for Live 365. Outlook.com does look better than Hotmail, but it's not nearly as intuitive for me, or as featureful (is that a word?). Google for me ALWAYS finds better results, no matter how many time I've tried to use Bing.

Thanks for the clarification, I thought I had posted someone else's opinion :)

So, for the opinion-Nazis of neowin, recommendations in the future, anytime I post opinion do I need to surround it in [opinion] tags, say "In my opinion", or anything else to make it more blatantly obvious that what I'm saying is opinion? Since apparently inference isn't a strong suit around here.

:rolleyes:

This is what I get for saying something bad about the almighty Google.

Microsoft could make a (generally) compelling product.

Slash other's products so your own product gets higher praise. That's a typical argument that's used in politics; doesn't stick so well.

Except it's used in politics because it works.

No, just word your comments correct so it comes off as an opinion an not a fact. If you want to put something to indicate an opinion, then do so if you want. I normally put IMO but that is just me as I want to make sure there is no confusion on what I mean.

This is what I get for saying something bad about the almighty Google.

And company that resorts tho this kind of "marketing" i call desperate. Whether it be MS, Apple, Samsung....whoever. I dont think Google is doing this...or not nearly as much as others. And hope they never do or else I would be saying the same crap about them.

Problem is, when MS does it, it's "Fighting dirty" when Apple does it (I'm a Mac, I'm a PC) it's no big deal? :s
